Guest blogging in 2013! Promote your articles here

As we round up activities for 2013 and look forward to a brighter new year in 2014, I want to look back and revisit the guest articles I submitted in 2013 and also give you an opportunity to promote yours. The reason is to give us more exposure to the kind of content I’m confident will add value to our blogging journey.

Did I succeed in Guest Blogging this year 2013?

My guest articles have done well, receiving a lot of visits and engagement from readers.Β  Though I submitted something below 10 guest posts this year, these are worth this recap. Let’s start with the article that’s my personal story!

1 Post submitted to YourOnlineBiz

In September 2013, I shared my story on YourOnlineBiz how I made money blogging the previous year. Most of us generate some income from our blogs and I know it’s always interesting to read success and inspiring stories. You may want to check out this guest post where I dished out some of the things I did to make about $7000 my first year of blogging. As a matter of fact, I was paid $100 to submit this guest post.guest blogging

  1. Yeah I’m too in the list of people who haven’t done guest blogging lately or in 2013 as these year has gone completely on social promotion and other stuff.

    Anyway thanks for providing awesome opportunity!

  2. It is a kind of you Enstine to give an occasion for other bloggers to promote articles here.
    This is extraordinary. I appreciate it very much. Unfortunately I am not ready to do guest blogging. I hope I can get an occasion like this next year.
    Thank you for this nice chance.

  3. Hi Enstine,

    You have definitely done very well with guest blogging. While you may not think that 10 is alot. Some of us have never done one.

    I will definitely be checking out some of the articles that you submitted for your guest blogs.

    Thanks for sharing what you did and I have no doubt that you will be able to do more this coming year.

    Have a great day.


  4. Hey

    Well I must say you are doing great job by providing opportunity for blogger to including guest posts in the comment section. For me I haven’t got well in guest blogging this year and bet next year would be wonderful in terms of promotion.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Hi Enstine, Merry X-mas and Happy new year in adwance, Thanks for sharing your experience with us,i have already read your story(guest post) in Youronlinebiz, you are doing great in blogging and your all article are awasome and inspireing,unfortunately i have not yet written any guest post but i’ll write in future…

  6. Hello,

    Well for me I think 2013 was not so good for guest blogging as I haven’t submitted any guest posts so far. The reason for the same is I feel like I don’t have time to do that. But made plans for upcoming year.


  7. Impressive list of guest posts, man. It was fun to look over of what you’d been up to throughout this past year.

    And congrats on your online income successes over the course of the year!

    Hope you’re doing well man.

  8. Hi Enstine,

    That’s an impressive list of guest posts, which puts me to shame! I hadn’t intended to publish any guest posts at all this year, but I did publish one on Harleena’s blog, on a personal development issue, about dealing with negative emotions. It was interesting and fun to write a post on something other than writing and blogging. Here’s the link:

    Thanks very much, Enstine, and I wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year – all the very best for 2014 πŸ™‚

  9. Thanks for sharing your results with guest posting Enstine!

    I wish I had some links to share, but I have not yet begun. Just trying to find the time, too much going on. Hard enough finding time to get my own writing done. But it’s something that I WILL be using in the new year.

    Curious, did you find these opportunities yourself, or did people approach you?

  10. Hello,
    I have not done any guest posts before,but planning for it very soon, this post inspired me even more to do it, on the way to read your guest post at youronlinebiz, πŸ™‚

    Thank you,

  11. What’s up Enstine,

    Thanks for sharing one of your many success stories with me by the way.

    ALSO, the magazine is coming soon featuring ANOTHER one of your guest posts, people don’t want to miss this.

    Here’s to a bigger brighter higher faster stronger better-er 2014, ha haaaaaaaaaaaa!

  12. Hey Enstine,

    You have been doing great as a blogger. I love reading your articles because you are a wonderful inspiration.

    I think I need to take a page or two out of your book and read them well.

    I need to start guest posting again and I think I owe you a guest post as well.

    Well be in touch and until then keep up the good work.

  13. Hi Enstine,

    I just love the idea of this post, and a nice way to express gratitude towards those whose blogs we have guest posted on too, rather than have our own usual links up. πŸ™‚

    Yes, I’ve seen most of these guest posts you’ve shared, and the one where you really earned $100 was a real surprise for all of us too. I still need to try my hand at that.

    Speaking of myself, I’ve been pretty bad with guest posts, and it was only when Adrienne asked me to write a guest post for her, did I move around a little and wrote my first ever guest post for her blog. Here is the link –
    It gave me immense happiness to note that my first guest post received 300 comments in all, a great boost for me to sit and write more, which again people have asked me thereafter, but I’ve yet to submit 2-3 more guest posts that I’ve been asked to submit. Like you, perhaps the coming year would be more organized for me too where guest posts, and a few interviews are concerned.

    Thanks for sharing, and this wonderful opportunity for us. Have a nice week ahead, and I hope your little trip was a good one, as I saw the pictures on FB πŸ™‚

    • Hey Harleena,
      Your very first guest post was a huge “boom”. It’s actually one of the most recommended articles on blog commenting so far.

      Oh yes! I’d like to have one of your articles on my blog as soon as you are ready. It’s really not an easy task to deal with comments on your blog and those on guest posts.

      Yes the trip was a real success. That’s the main reason I’m not as regular online as I used to be. I’m getting a few things up offline. I should be back fully by January. Thanks for your concern πŸ˜‰

  14. Hello Enstine,
    Good to hear.. You are entering in the World of Blogging this year and made $ 7000 in your first year.. Great Man.. I am doing blogging since last 3 years.. But never serious much more.

  16. Thanks for detailed information Enstine, i really love this and i appreciate the share. i have not yet guest post on BasicBlogTips, but come Next year, i will surely be doing that, except she decides not to accept Guest posts anymore.

  17. Hi Enstine,
    guest posting is definitely the way to build safe and quality links, also for the next year.

  18. Hi Enstine Sir,
    Thanks for sharing your experience in guest blogging. Really guest blogging develops relationships. I have submitted only two-three guest post in this year which is totally sad news for me. I need to work more on guest blogging. I was probably busy in my blog personal life. Thanks for making me motivated by sharing all your guest articles and hope its Christmas Time..
